This is a harrowing story of a true Huck’s Heroine: Samantha Tygrit was packing up her car after shopping at a Las Vegas Walmart when two men got into a shootout in the parking lot and a bullet struck her in the shoulder. She ran to protect her daughter and her baby son and nephew. She would have been too late, except her daughter, Aaliyah Inghram, had spotted the danger and threw herself between the shooters and the two babies just in time. A bullet that would likely have killed her 18-month-old brother struck her instead. Luckily, she’s recovering. Police caught one of the shooters, and they believe they know who the other one was.
For the full story and to meet this incredibly brave young woman who reacted instantly to place herself in the line of fire to save her brother, click on the link. But don’t be surprised by Aaliyah’s size. She’s only 10 years old.
Incidentally, I love her American flag dress. Somehow reminds me of Wonder Woman.
